Abstract
(EN)



One aspect of the present invention provides a method for systematically
arranging paint color samples for convenient browsing and identification of
desired colors by shoppers. Paint color sample cards are arranged on a two-
dimensional display surface such that colors of similar hue are categorized or
grouped together (e.g., along a column). Groups of paint color sample cards
having different base hue or color are arranged such that there is a gradual
transition between paint colors from one region to the next region. For
instance, the colors of sample cards may gradually change from column to
column across a two-dimensional display. Additionally, within each color
group, paint color sample cards are arranged from most chromatic to least
chromatic colors. Another aspect of the invention provides for accent color
sample cards to be displayed adjacent to the various base color groups.
